Football and more: don’t miss a visit to Wembley Stadium on your London trip!
Home to England’s national team, the name ‘Wembley’ is recognised by everyone. The iconic new stadium, which opened in 2007, has an incredible capacity of 90,000. In fact, it’s the one of the largest stadiums in Europe. And this means it’s an amazing venue – not only for football, but other sports, and huge pop concerts too.
A must for football fans
You may not get tickets for the FA Cup Final, but you’ll find all kinds of exciting matches here. And Wembley will be hosting some of the UEFA Euro 2020 matches. In fact the first qualifier is taking place there in early September, as England play Bulgaria. And it doesn’t have to be exclusively expensive – tickets for adults start from £30, or cheaper for families. However, check the website early for the best ticket options.
Alternatively, if you’re not visiting London on a match day, why not experience a stadium tour? These two hour tours take you ‘back stage’ so you can see the stadium as the players see it. Our tip is to book ahead, as it’s popular.
Watch a concert
Not a football fan? Maybe you’d rather watch a big name concert instead. Because Wembley is also a stop on the world tour of many famous pop and rock acts. And there’s nothing like the atmosphere of a sell-out concert at a venue like this. So whether you like classic acts such as Bon Jovi, or modern favourites like P!NK, an unforgettable experience is guaranteed.
Again, our tip is to book well in advance, because these acts sell out really fast!
Or maybe something different
Wembley is not just home to soccer matches. How about American football? This year, two NFL games take place at Wembley. So grab a ticket for the action this autumn and get ready for some high-energy football.
